Falcons cut tackle Daniel Brunskill after Ty Sambrailo trade

New, comments

We can sum up Brunskill’s preseason performance by pointing out the team traded a 5th round pick for someone who gave up a billion sacks.

We knew this one was coming. Daniel Brunskill was probably a long shot at cracking the 53 after coming in very light for an offensive lineman. He made the transition from tight end to tackle late in his college career, and he just still was not ready for the NFL.

Tough break. Brunskill will hope to latch onto the practice squad. However, based on Twitter instant reactions to his play, that may also be a long shot.

Lets see what the Twitterverse had to say.

It’s still not great, but it is definitely better than past years where the team relied on Tom Compton and Bryce Harris.

Going to assume butt booty is not a positive assessment.

I checked and Deuce Bigalow is not actually an NFL player. This is another bad sign.

Another disappointing end, but the Falcons have better answers at offensive line depth than they have had in years.
